Guru Nanak Jayanti is a special occasion for Sikhs all across India & globe. Prabhat Pheris or the early morning religious procession goes around the localities singing hymns, starting three weeks before the festival. Devotees offer sweets and tea when the procession passes by their houses. The Shri Guru Granth Sahib is read continuously. Local bands play religious music and marching school children form a special part of the procession. Various school students, eminent citizens, Gatka Parties display mock-battle with the traditional weapons, and devotees singing hymns from Shri Guru Granth Sahib in chorus. The passage of the “nagarkirtan” is decorated with flags, flowers; religious posters decorated gates and banners depicting various aspects of Sikhism. On the Gurupurab day, the Divan begins in at about 4 or 5 a.m. with the singing of Asa-di-var and hymns from Shri Guru Granth Sahib. Sometimes it is followed by katha (discourse), religious and Sikh Historical lectures and recitation of poems in praise of the Guru. Kirtan-Darbars and Amrit Sanchar ceremonies are also held in the Gurdwara hall. Men, women, and children, participate in this “karseva” as a service to the community, cook food and distribute it in the “Guru ka Langar“, with the traditional “Karah Prasad“. But amidst all these activities there is one thing that is missing, the free distribution of sweets to everyone irrespective of religious faith.
